As one of the four major home appliances, the status of the television set has been declining year after year. In my opinion, it is not only impacted by cell phones, pads and other mobile terminals, but also by similar viewing devices "projectors".
Especially after the rise of Netflix decoration, more and more people began to abandon the traditional TV and replace it with a projector. In my house, for example, I installed a projector to keep up with the trend.But because I didn't know much about projectors when I first started, I had to aim for a high-selling option on the e-commerce platform.
However after really experiencing it, I found that the high sales cheap projector, the visual effect is really bad! Even after using it for less than 1 month, I replaced the 300+ projector, directly with a 3000+ projector. I just want to say that the difference between the two price point projectors is really huge!
Next, combined with my experience of using two price point projectors and this time on their research, to briefly share their similarities and differences, I hope to bring you some reference.
"A" 300 yuan projector and 3000 yuan projector the same thing
According to my understanding, after a comprehensive comparison of two different price points of projectors, I found many similarities between them.In general, these 5 points can be summarized as follows: The
1、The service life of the bulb is about the same
Whether it's the $300 projector I abandoned, or the $3000 projector I'm using now, they all have a 30,000 hour lamp life. As you can see, this one configuration is not the focus, nor is it an indicator to improve product pricing.
2, both support WiFi, and both can voice control
Many people may think that high-end projectors must be more intelligent. In fact, this is not the case, even three to four hundred dollars projector, but also can bring some humane intelligent experience. For example, WiFi, screen casting, same screen, voice control and so on.
3, all can "trapezoid correction"
In my opinion, "keystone correction" is a standard capability of projectors. Those projectors that can't be keystone corrected have long been eliminated.
4、Placement size is about the same
The size of the projector is not related to the price, no matter how high-end the projector, or how cheap the projector is, the size of the projector is basically between 30-300 inches.
5、Noise difference is not obvious
Although many people say that the low-end projectors are noisier. But during my actual use, I found that even the low-end projectors that are more than 300 yuan, the noise during operation is relatively small. Although the noise control is not as good as the high priced projectors, but it does not affect the viewing.(Most are able to achieve less than 30dB)
The above points, because the difference is not very big, so we are in the selection, so naturally, there is no need to go deeper understanding.
The next point is the "difference" between the two.
『Two』300 yuan projector and 3000 yuan projector of the difference
After I installed the first projector, I couldn't even turn it on more than 5 times before I just couldn't watch it anymore. The reason is simple, just look at the picture below!
1、ANSI lumens are different
Whether it's an offline mall, or an online e-commerce platform, sales or customer service will generally say that the projector can be used during the day. But they don't tell you exactly how good the daytime viewing is. For example, the cheap projector in my house, when opened during the day, can not see clearly at all.
The key to determining the visual effect of the projector during the day is the "ANSI lumen" parameter, as we found out after careful research. The larger the number, the better. Simply put, the greater the ANSI lumen value, the higher the brightness during the day, so it is clearer.(about 40 square meters of living room, the value of 800-1200 lumens between the best)
2、Different display technologies
The key to judging whether a projector is worth investing in is definitely to refer to the "display technology" indicator. After my research, I found that the lower the display technology, the less clear the picture quality.
The display technologies currently on the market for projector applications are LCD, DLP, 3LCD and LCoS. The most mainstream display technology for low-end projectors is LCD, while most of the high-end projectors, display technology is used DLP. as for the remaining two although the visual effect is good, but forced to cost and many other factors, now offline market share is very little. So when picking, remember to choose the DLP.(The general LCD projector basically does not exceed $1000, otherwise it is an IQ tax, pick carefully)
3、Features vary greatly
Leaving aside the above mentioned WiFi, voice and other basic functions, the high-end and low-end of the projector can also be judged by the difference in features. For example, my home projector of more than 3,000 yuan has three or four more functions than the projector of more than 300 yuan. For example, it can auto-focus, can support 3D playback, etc.
In addition the size of the running memory is also an important indicator to be referred to. Generally the larger the running memory means the smoother the visual experience. This is actually similar to a television set. Just remember one thing, in the premise of sufficient budget, the larger the running memory is definitely the better.
See here, I believe you already understand the main difference between high and low end projectors. When picking one, be sure to look at the 3 "differences" above. They are also the key to not stepping on the toes.
The American Home Guide says.
The projector as a home appliance is currently becoming popular, the market is mixed, the quality of products is also uneven, so it is recommended that you must look at the experience and lessons learned from the past, to avoid being harvested by the business IQ tax. More home features, we'll see you in the next issue!
